Original title: “”Encrypted People · Color History” Technology Circle”
Written by: Ash Egan
In the Silicon Valley venture capital circle, the “PayPal gang” is an inevitable topic. This term first appeared in an article in the US “Fortune” magazine, which mentioned that since PayPal was acquired by eBay in 2002, although most of the early important employees of PayPal chose to leave or start their own businesses, they still maintain each other. Close contact, like a mafia organization, controls the American technology industry.
In fact, there are many outstanding talents who enter the market every day. They have the potential to become superstars in this emerging field, and may even build the next Coinbase. In addition, some more mature encryption companies are also trying to dig people to create more impressive derivative products.
It is undeniable that ideology plays a very important role in establishing companies for entrepreneurs. For investors, it is also crucial to understand and master the flow of talent in the market. Drawing on this concept, it aims to explore the formation and flow of talent pools in the current encryption industry. The early formed “crypto gangs” are divided into four categories according to industry types, namely: native crypto circles, technology circles, financial (Wall Street) circles, and academic circles.
This article will be launched in the technology circle. The organization of technology giants is usually very large, making it the most difficult thing to analyze gang members in this field, even requiring access to thousands of LinkedIn profiles. In addition, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Amazon, and Yahoo employees also have a lot of communication. Some people may work for a company for one to two years and then move to another technology giant.
